Chart Notes:

  • Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s big hit “Rain On Me” storms the top spot with a 3-1 move in its fifth week on my personal chart, raining on Dua Lipa‘s pop parade after an eight-week stretch at the summit with “Break My Heart”. The pair of pop bops are certainly worthy of both the Song Of The Summer title and a high placing on my year-end survey in December. Four tracks debut on the latest update, with “My Own Soul’s Warning” by The Killers leading the pack at #32. It’s the follow-up to “Caution”, which just spent the past six weeks at #2. From there, “Cruel Summer” from Taylor Swift comes in at #37, the fifth entry to rank from her Lover album, while Cam‘s “Redwood Tree” and Tessa Violet‘s “Bored” land at #39 and #40, respectively. Violet is the only newcomer in the mix, while Cam earns her second top 40 song.

Currently running in an ad for Tyson Foods, “Family” earns Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors their first entry on my chart at #35. One spot lower, Neon Trees is in with “New Best Friend”. The #36 debut is the second single off the forthcoming album I Can Feel You Forgetting Me and was the Most Added song at the Alternative radio format this past Tuesday.

Will it reach the top spot by the end of June? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, two debuts land on the chart, both from artists who certainly aren’t strangers to my chart: the Goo Goo Dolls and Mandy Moore. The former’s “Fearless” has no fear entering at #37, while the latter’s “Tryin’ My Best, Los Angeles” does its best with a start at #39.

Walk Off The Earth featuring Gnash – Nicknames

Chart Notes:

  • After reaching #1 last week with “Physical”, Dua Lipa is still holding onto the top spot… but with a different tune. “Break My Heart” makes a 4-1 move to become her fifth chart-topper to date and third of 2020, the most of any artist on my chart this year. Lipa is the first performer to replace themselves at #1 since 2006 and is the first woman to do so. Though its five-week run to the top spot isn’t a record, “Break My Heart” does match the speedy climbs of hits like Adele‘s “Hello” (2015) and Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” (2017), which held at #1 for seven and four weeks, respectively. In non-Dua Lipa news, Niall Horan‘s “Black And White” leads a batch of three debuts at #36. This is the fourth track to enter my chart from his recent album Flicker, one of which got to #1: 2019’s “Nice To Meet Ya”. “I Hope”, a recent #1 hit at the Country radio format by American Idol alum Gabby Barrett, enters at #39 thanks to a new version with Charlie Puth. Finally, at #40, Martin Garrix and Clinton Kane are also new to the chart with “Drown”. The collaboration ranks just below the top 50 at Top 40 radio.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa earns her fourth #1 single on my chart with “Physical”, which flips and somersaults into the top spot from #2 last week. This is her second chart-topper of 2020, following a four-week run with “Don’t Start Now” from January and February. She could extend that to three in the next week or two at the rate that “Break My Heart” is climbing, which jumps from 8-4 in just its fourth week in the top 40. Starting at #35 as the higher of two debuts is “I Dare You”, the new chart entry for American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson. The track heads for adds at the Hot AC radio format on Monday. Also impacting that day, but at the Triple A format, is Moon Taxi‘s “Hometown Heroes”, which enters at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Sam Fischer‘s “This City” continues its domination over the city that is my personal chart, earning a fifth week at the top. However, big hits by Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and The Killers could end his reign as early as next week, as they continue to gain. All three debuts this week are by male newcomers: Jaymes Young is in at #36 with “Happiest Year”, whose first charting song has been fueled by the video app TikTok. A recent top 40 entry in Austria and Germany by Tom Gregory, “Fingertips”, starts at #38. Juno Award winner Donovan Woods also lands on the list at #40 with “Grew Apart”, which impacts at the Triple A radio format later this month. How will they do on my chart? Stay tuned.

Chart Notes:

  • Sam Fischer‘s “This City” keeps on going, spending a fourth week at #1 on my personal chart. Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” has a huge 31-16 jump in its second week in the countdown, easily scoring the Biggest Mover title. Two newer releases that are moving up at the Alternative radio format debut on my chart this week: Chaz Cardigan‘s “Not OK!” at #37 and the Major Lazer and Marcus Mumford collaboration “Lay Your Head On Me” at #38. Cardigan’s first radio single impacts towards the end of April, while Major Lazer and Mumford’s tune led the adds report at the format last Tuesday.
